Every time I think about our trip to Disney in October I get more and more excited. Disney World, Sea World, Downtown Disney… it is going to be a blast. The ONLY thing I am not looking forward to…. fourteen hours in the car. Sure both girls have their iPads and stuff, but they are just like their mother – and get car sick after just a few minutes of riding while reading. So we need stuff to DO – that is where the 52 Things To Do In The Car iPhone App comes in.
Load every car trip with miles of smiles with these fun, family-friendly activities sure to please kids of all ages on the go. This whimsically-illustrated 52 card deck app includes guessing games, sightseeing challenges, tongue twisters and riddles, and imaginative art projects for car trips both long and short.
Now, I know this game is meant for kids, but I have to admit – I have had fun playing it with adults in the car. Let's face it – being in the car longer than 5 minutes is crazy boring for anyone, and there is nothing worse than when there is nothing good on the radio to sing along to (which has been happening a lot lately.)
Midge really likes getting to scroll through the 52 full color “cards” to pick which game we will play. And the horn that sounds when she chooses makes her giggle every time. I also like that the instructions are simple – she can easily read them out to us to play. You can also send them to friends via email and share in the fun. The Teen even plays along – which is nice because normally they fight and bicker with each other in the back seat. This app lets them happily play together, taking turns on picking cards.
52 Things To Do In The Car iPhone App is available now for your iPhone or iPad for just $.99. You can download it here from iTunes and never have a boring car ride again!
